regulations) to clarify that government entities operating parking garages or parking lots are exempt from the permitting requirements applicable to other commercial parking garage and valet operations. >> thank you very much. i believe we have a representative from supervisor campos' office here. >> good morning, supervisors. [speaker not understood] on behalf of supervisor david campos. the legislation before you amends the city's parking enforcement laws under the business and tax code. it reduces the bonding requirement for operators that have a strong record of tax compliance and simplifies the bonding categories. additionally, the legislation includes other clarifications and administrative changes that ms. florence mar who manages the business tax section of the treasurer and tax collector's office will present on. supervisor campos introduced this legislation after hearing from small parking operators that were having a difficult time meeting the high bonding requirements and larger operators that have operated in good faith with a proven record of responsible third-party tax colle
of its role in city government i think that this has to be done and that's one of the reasons i wanted to have it on the agenda, so i appreciate the comments, and again mr. fried. >> yeah. i want to make sure there are no other am whys we wanted to look at. >> >> on next year's agenda and spent so much time on that one. >> in terms of goals and objectives colleagues? we heard from commissioner olague about -- i think a very, very good issue which is the issue of committee appointments and the structure where you have split appointments as opposed to simply mayoral appointments and how that works. i think that is one possibility. commissioner avalos. >> just a vague idea that i want to put out there that could be looked at by lafco maybe. one is we talk about san francisco's growing economy, and it's especially growing in the tech sector. there was a report in the paper today from the bay area council study and uc berkeley study there is a great multiplying effect happening right now with jobs created but i'm wondering if the city having greater or in the water to make sure that w
with the landlords about this possibility and i also note that yesterday, the federal government i announced that san francisco has reduced homelessness among our veterans by 60% since twee 11 and even though that is something to be proud of, i think we can do more in this effort, i think we should move in that direction. and the next item that i have is something that i mentioned last week much has been said recently about the housing authority but i wanted to make sure that as we discuss what is happening with that agency, that we go back to focusing on how this agency is fuelly serving the needs of it's residents. so i am introducing a motion directing the budget and legislative nillists to conduct a performance on it of the san francisco housing authority and making that audit a priority and this will be a motion that would ensure a focus on compliance with all complicate federal state and local laws on the effectiveness of the governance of the agency and it will look all the financial over site and controls and status of implementations and prior recommendation and is other prior audits and re
civic project. i've never been involved in anything that involves local city government before. and i went started going to the meetings, because i was interested. i'm not a renter, i'm not an owner, i have nothing to lose except looking at this project as somebody who might be impacted because there might be more cars in the neighborhood, circling for parking. but i did write a letter because when i started to attend the meetings, i started to hear things like oh, we don't have to do that, we don't have to do that, sf mta can govern itself and we don't have to do, and it actually concerned me as a policy for the city and as a resident of the city that there are agencies that are self-governing and don't feel like they have to comply with statutes that other businesses have had to, like filleti plaza being an example. they had to do an environmental impact study on something that was a smaller area within the neighborhood. so i just wanted to make the case that i think that it is a good idea to evaluate this as a precedent for a city where there are -- there isn't a beltway. there isn
and commissions are governed by either your charter or by state law so it's easy to go down the road to figure out is it something that can be changed or a discretionary act within the board of supervisors or the mayor and to go about change that so it's something you could look at. >> i guess in the charter -- i am wondering in terms how they function or not, and i don't know how we get into that really. maybe it's not worth it. i won't be here obviously but it's something i was something about. i guess i am thinking out loud here. >> point well taken. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> i'm sorry. i was misunderstanding commissioner olague's question -- >> i think commissioner olague -- >> yeah, i was wondering because you have some commissions that are selected entirely by the mayor and some aren't and i am wondering in terms of the outcomes -- whatever. >> i am with you now. i was responding to what i thought you were asking but you were asking something different. >> okay. >> let me just say -- yes commissioner? >> actually one other clarifying -- so under this proposal ms. miller would remai
association in government and community affairs. i am here to speak on behalf of the legislation and thank you to supervisor mar for your sponsorship. we have been trying to address tobacco smoke in apartments for several years now and we've been trying to address it in a way that wouldn't spur evictions for tenants and wouldn't spur lawsuits for land lords. the best way to go about that legislation seemed to be a disclosure policy. the disclosure policy doesn't change any current lease agreements, it changes no current smoking policies but it's a disclosure of those policies. it's based on the right to know that if someone is going to move into an apartment they have the right to know if smoke will come into their apartment. it's not often that the landlord community and the tenant community gets to work together. in this circumstance i can say that we have a broad base of support. it's a commonsense piece of legislation. the landlord community is behind it, the tenant community is behind it, we've met with supervisor wiener's office as well as supervisor cohen's office and i'm here
go with the lead ratings and the assessors data basis and data for local governments and property owners so it's hard for the city to do smart energy and policy if we don't know where we're starting from so we need to benchmark as a city and need property owners to know what their energy use and patterns are within their own property. the second one is to encourage local renewable energy and dg distributed generation and don't need to build new transition needs and local security and keep the dollars in the local economy and to help with us there are a number of recommendations and they're tinkering around the edge of our regulatory process and rules but ultimately we want to work together to drive comprehensive energy policy to support renewables and continue to take the lead on streamlining the processes and working with neighboring jurisdictions to do that as well so we have a standard system bay area wide and include this for local renewals and work with pg&e and we have a robust electric grid downtown and precludes installing renewable energy there and work with the homeowner

in city government is issues come up unexpectantedly and there are some other thing that comes up, so whatever we adopt of course hopefully is subject to some modification and i would simply encourage all of the commissioners to make sure that if there is anything else that you would like to include in this that you let our staff know and that you let vice chair avalos' staff know and we don't want to leave any of that out. so again i appreciate the discussion and we will be working on this and come back to these two items at the next commission meeting. madam clerk if you could please call item number seven. >> item number seven executive's officer's report. >> miss miller. >> we have election of officers in january -- i really don't have a report unless you want to talk about the joint hearing that we had with the sf puc. we are looking for dates in february for the next one but other than that that concludes my reports. >> commissioners, any comments or questions? >> any member of the public what would like to speak? seeing none public comment is closed and i'm not sure when to m
